Lewis and Clark Activity

Lewis and Clark Activity

If you are like me, you are always looking for ways to integrate the subjects of social studies and science into your reading and writing activities.  We have been studying Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and their expedition to the Pacific Ocean.  Of course, Sacagawea was along for a good portion of the trip, too.  Because we know so much about their journey due to the journals they kept, I thought it would be neat for the kids to write from the perspective of one of the three people and recount some of the adventures, discoveries, and hardships they faced.  Plus, I found the coolest extra-large journal-looking paper at the Dollar Store, so it made for a fun activity.  Even fourth graders love it when you pull out cool writing paper! Most wrote more than would fit on the journal  paper, so they had to write some on notebook paper and staple it to the journal sheet.They look great hanging out in the hall.  Here is a peek
